|MRtrix: MR tractography including crossing fibres
Principal Developer: Donald Tournier, PhD
Co-developers: David Raffelt, PhD; Robert Smith, PhD; Ben Jeurissen, PhD
MRtrix provides a set of tools to perform diffusion-weighted MR
white-matter tractography in a manner robust to crossing fibres, using
constrained spherical deconvolution (CSD) and probabilistic streamlines.
MRtrix is released under the GNU General Public License. The stable 0.2 version is available for
download at NITRC. Documentation for this version
is available here. Note that this version is no longer under active
development and now only receives bug fix updates.
The new MRtrix3 release, which includes the latest developments,
is available on the MRtrix3 GitHub page, along with its
documentation. While this version isn't yet an official release, it is already very stable. However, note that it is
under active development, and as such subject to frequent changes.

SOCK (Spatially Organized Component Klassifikator)
can be used to automatically identify a high proportion of the artifactual components arising in Independent Componenets Analysis (ICA) of fMRI. It is described in detail in the following manuscript:
Bhaganagarapu K, Jackson GD, Abbott DF. An automated method for identifying artifact in Independent Component Analysis of resting-state fMRI.
Frontiers in Human Neuroscience 7(343):1-16 (2013). (doi: 10.3389/fnhum.2013.00343).
The SOCK software is written in Matlab and presently works well with MELODIC ICA software
(part of FSL from FMRIB).
SOCK software is released under
the GNU General Public License, and is now available for
download at NITRC.
